Handbag & Book a new colorful straw bag & book too #MFRWorg #RssosSisters #fashion #accessories

Handbag & Book with
Vicki Batman
I just had to do it. My sister sent me a picture of a handbag and it was absolutely adorable. But the price---yikes!

So I ventured on over to ETSY and found this one:
Funny, there is no label at all on the inside so I could possibly discover more about the maker. It measures approximately 10 x 13 inches. Roomy on the inside and lined with a material which makes it mostly waterproof, like what we'd expect a summer touristy bag to have. I love the colorful embroidered flowers--there are some on the sides too. The tote handles are my favorite.


Now, you see why I couldn't resist! And at a fraction of the price of the big-name designer.


Here's a couple of cuties I found on ETSY:
















Do you buy a bag to use each summer? Are you one who finds a touristy bag when traveling?

And guess what? a copy of my romantic comedy mystery, Temporarily Employed, will fit inside and is the PERFECT beach read-light, funny, with a great hero. Find TE at e-retailers and at: Amazon

Great summer bag. Yes, I change my "everyday" bag with the seasons.

No...but I am not a handbag person. I know, that seems odd to you! For many years, I didn't carry one at all and now that I have my new wallet phone case, I rarely carry my purse any more. I think I am going to have to dig out an old larger one for Saturdays this month, so I can fit what I need for the kids for hockey camp! Yikes! I cannot even fit a hair brush in the one I carry!
I DO notice the cute ones other people carry, though and that cute embroidered one I sure would notice and comment on!

Hi, Angela! You must show me your summer bag sometime. Hugs.

Hi, Cathy! I don't think a wallet case would be big enough for me even though I don't carry tons of things. A makeup/drugs case. Sunglasses. Phone. Earbuds. Odds and Ends. No kitchen sink. Sometimes a water bottle especially when traveling. And tissues!!! Lordy, this allergy season is wearing me down. Week two.
